Karl Lagerfeld backtracks after calling Adele fat

Karl Lagerfeld is eating the harsh words he had for Adele.

On Monday, the designer and creative director for Chanel told Metro that he enjoyed Adele's music, but at the same time felt the need to comment on the Brit singer's weight.

"The thing at the moment is Adele," he said. "She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice."

The uproar was fast and furious, and Lagerfeld has since backtracked with a larger explanation.

"I'd like to say to Adele that I'm your biggest admirer," he said in Metro on Wednesday, adding that his remark was taken out of context. The statement above was in response to a question about Lana Del Rey, the oft-ridiculed singer whom Lagerfeld said "is not bad at all," but he added that he prefers "Adele and Florence Welch."

In his apology, the designer continued, "What I said was in relation to Lana Del Rey...I actually prefer Adele, she is my favorite singer."

Recounting his own weight loss 10 years ago, Lagerfeld added, "I know how it feels when the press is mean to you in regards to your appearance. Adele is a beautiful girl. She is the best. And I can't wait for her next CD."

    You got it right the first time, Karl... She IS fat... and we're all forced to look at her in disgust... she pollutes the air waves and I can't stand watching her on TV because I'm so repulsed... if she wishes to be in the public eye she needs to think of others and to stop making them sick... It's because of people like you and I, Karl, that keeps things in perspective... Cheers!

    It doesn't matter if she is "not as fat as this other person" or "looks better than this one person" or any other excuse. Being overweight shouldn't be about other people. It should be about your "appearance". It's about your health. Given her height and her body build it is quite obvious just from pictures that she would at least fall in the overweight category, possibly obese. It doesn't matter who's mouth that statement is coming out of, you can insult that person all you want but the statement is true. She is overweight, and that isn't healthy for her or anyone else.

    I love her singing, I think she has a wonderful voice and writes beautiful music. All the more reason I'd like to see her healthy now and in 20 years. The recipe for that is to lose some weight.

    I don't feel Lagerfeld or anyone has the right to insult anyone. I don't care who they are, how much money they have, they don't have that right. There were several posts on here in which some said the truth has to be spoken. So telling someone else they are fat HAS to be said? Why! That is just bullying and that is just wrong! Lagerfeld can just backtrack all he wants just like anyone else who gets called on the carpet after saying something like this, but he still said it.

    People who are fat know they are. Telling them so accomplishes nothing, except perhaps to send them to the fridge. Why not be kind? She has a beautiful voice and a beautiful face. I'll bet she loses weight but if she doesn't, it's her business. From watching her on the Grammy's, she seems to be beautiful on the inside. Personally, I'd rather see a nice person with a beautiful voice than look at a scarecrow. I'm not a guy looking at a hot girl, however.

      Recent studies have actually been done to look at the public persona of "overweight" and "obese" in America. Many many overweight/obese people have a very skewed perspective on what it takes to be overweight. Granted I'm most familiar with the studies done looking at parents and their children (Where a large majority did not see their child as "overweight" even though they fell in the "obese" category), there are similar studies out there for personal perception. As the average weight of the united states increases, more and more people think because they look like the people around them they are healthy. That just isn't true.

    Who cares about her weight? She is a singer. There have been many successful overweight singers. If she wants to lose weight, she'll do it.

    Or maybe a few more idiotic comments like this will drive her to an eating disorder. Then she can can be yet another famous female skeletor with a drug addiction. That's what we need more of.

    Karl Lagerfeld has no room to talk about anyone. He was fat once, too. He's lost 90 pounds. Now he looks like some sadist with his leather and dark glasses. He looks like some sort of Swiss Alps Nazi and all he needs are jackboots and a whip. Adele is not one of his models – she never claimed to be. She is a singer and whether she's fat or not, is irrelevant. She has a beautiful face and gorgeous voice. She's better looking and more talented than 99.99% of us on here so STFU!

    Here's a question. One day your child or teenage, a niece or nephew or any young person that touches your heart, comes home from school with great news. They have won a talent contest for having a beautiful singing voice, or they received all A's, or did something extraordinary they never thought they would ever accomplish. You're are proud and excited too. You tell them you love them BUT they're still fat and kiddingly you starting singing fattyfattyfatty. What then?You say "oh I'm just kidding" and walk away. You've completely discounted and contradicted their accomplishment. Are feeling good about yourself.? Maybe you don't care and you are clueless how your words have affacted your pride and joy. Be careful. Words are as powerful as your actions. How many of you would be comfortable showing your judgemental comment to your children? If you believe that teens don't read these comments then you are not paying attention. Congratulations Adele.

I don't think so! why is the jealousy? you are a old guizzard ,and the last person ever to say something like that to a Woman is you!

      Maggie, you must be a fat girl who makes herself feel better by thinking that "real women" should be fat too. First of all, the vast majority of women in the world are NOT obese....a woman who is slim or fit is not a skeleton, she is actually quite "real" and "healthy". Why must fat girls like yourself hate on healthy, slim girls by calling them "skeletons" or implying that they are somehow "not real"? One of the biggest problems with the obesity epidemic in America is denial of the issues. Rather than accepting that a fat woman is unhealthy, people like you deflect the criticism back to girls who are a healthy weight and create a backlash against being thin and healthy.

It isn't the popular thing now, because of this whole "I'm big but hey, you have to still pretend and tell me how beautiful I am anyway, or just plain LIE to me and say I'm NOT fat" PC thing.

    Oh yeah Adele, you look just AMAZING! Same for you Gabourey Sidibe. We HAVE to make sure we build fat acceptance here people, so that when you croak of a heart attack, when you get diabetes at age 35, when your blood pressure is through the roof and you're on 10 meds, we can just act surprised and astonished.

    What happened to the days of personal responsibility for poor lifestyle choices? Oh yeah, we don't expect people to take that anymore, we have to just accept their laziness and pretend that the outcome is beautiful.

      @RADAR – So true! If you're going to put yourself into the limelight and the public eye, then if you're fat (Adele), expect that you will be called out. If you're ugly (Karl Lagerfield), that expect to be called out on that too.

      Most the folks posting on here in outrage probably haven't seen the inside of a gym, nor know how to practice any self control in eating choices. Fat is fat, but what it isn't is attractive, try to spin it however you want. Call it what it is and move on already. If you're going to be lazy and fat, then just do it but don't think everyone else has got to LIE to you.

      I have relatives like this that are fat and always fishing for complements with the typical "Oh does this outfit make me look fat?". No. It doesn't. They just ARE fat. And no matter how many times they see me go running and cycling, NOT go to eat fast food with them, and NOT eat sweeties everyday, they don't understand why they aren't thinner. Hmmmm it's not rocket science....exercise MORE and eat better and LESS. Same as its always been, self control..

    What bothers me is why it's a topic of conversation anyway? There are billions of people in this world who are fat, skinny, short, tall, ugly, beautiful, etc. Adele is a wonderful singer who has used her talent to suceed in a harsh business. The fact that she is larger than most anorexic bleached blondes with fake boobs and still suceeds just confirms the extent of her talent. We have become so self-absorbed and materialistic that if someone steps outside the cookie-cutter body type expected of famous people, we feel we must attack them by calling them names. Anyone who is hung up on her dress size should spend more time wondering why they are so superficial in the first place.

    I think the whole issue is not her being fat or not,(she IS fat), but that he was gauche in saying it when it has NOTHING to do with her talent as a singer. It would be like some other person saying "oh Karl Lagerfelt is a great designer, but you know, he looks like an old troll." He IS an old troll, but it doesn't have anything to do with his work as a designer, therefore it would be in poor taste to mention it.

    Sure, she is a bit overweight. I could care less, as I buy her music, not her diet advice. Regarding those associating being heavy with being vocally powerful: No, opera singers aren't required to be big people. That stereotype comes more from their life styles than the notion that size leads to vocal power. I note it is changing, and assure you that skinny people with talent and proper technique are just as capable of being powerful vocalists. I work in the industry.

    Seems that everyone is afraid to mention the fact that while gays are the loudest about anti-bullying, they are notoriously the biggest bullies.

      way to re-word my comments dingbat. If you actually take the time to read my comment you'll notice I compliment her voice and call it "nice" (to be great you would approaching the Groban's and others with years of classical training). I called her overall music generic, which it is. The is nothing new or outstanding about her music, it's just easy listening and done by everyone else in the industry. Is there something wrong with that? No, not at all. Music is about opinons like many things, and you're just easily offended.

      And for the record Nicki Minaj is a no talent a$$ clown

    Love how this guy is getting lambasted for stating a fact...Adele is fat. Not that hard to see, but is it a big deal? No, I could personally care less. The part that bothers me is how generic her music is. Sure she has a nice voice (not amazing), but the overall composition of her music is nothing special. The people that make the selections for the Grammies have proven more and more to be out of touch with quality music since they let Norah Jones sweep the awards. Yes, believe it or not, elevator music with a bad vocal range should not warrant you winning alot of awards.

    OK, shes fat, shes english too and so she knows shes fat without anyone telling her...I'm british, I'm fat, obese, oversized, whatever.

    It doesnt take a clothes designer to tell me...i wear XXL clothes....they give me a clue, lets not try stating the obvious, if she lost weight shed not say she used to be normal but is now less normal...your body fat index tells you, your mirror tells you but some people are happy like that, they dont fret over the scales, over some magazine body image.

    I have never felt i was missing out on something by not having a 6 pack any more then being able to snowboard, own a ferarri or live in a 20000 ft mansion.

    Having a voice though..now that id like..and as karl largerfeld sounds and looks like hes after a gold ring called 'precious' he really is not one to talk, and as a lot of that stupid look goes along with his clothes, for a designer to wear crappy clothes like that is a lot more serious then wether adele has some extra body fat.

    If she lived in america she would not be picked on for being fat, shed be adored for having a voice that people love and as can be attested to by the 1 in every 5 recrds played on my radio station we love her in Boston

    Be careful what you say people, i've seen MANY people who have put down fat people that turn around a year later and have gained alot of weight due to medication or a medical condition beyond their control. Never put someone else down because you don't know what they're going through, plus you are not perfect. DESPITE whether or not she's overweight, there was absolutely no reason for Mr.Lagerfeld, OR any of you to try and put her down. Do you think she doesn't know what she looks like ? (Beautiful)

    Karl Lagerfeld was correct. She is overweight. Why do we tippytoe around the facts. It is what it is. Anyway, I hope Lana Del Rey's debut album, 'Born to Die.' takes over the number one spot on Billboard. I own Adele's album and I am so tired of her songs, I can't bear to listen to it anymore.

      Yeah, but when she loses her voice permanently, because she doesn't know how to use it properly, she will fade away into obscurity. Karl, on the other hand, will still be making fabulous designs!

      Shelly, maybe if you can make some room in your mouth, you could teach the grammy winner how to use a voice.

      Fabulous designs? Look at the stupid get up he has on. He looks like a creepy gay crossdressing grandpop.

      And he is still ugly.

      I agree...before Lagerfeld feels the need to comment on anybodys' looks, he needs to take a very good look in the mirror. He has to be one of the most unattractive individuals out there...he has no room talk trash...

      Adele is as bloated as her number of plays on the radio.

      She has beautiful voice; but you have to tell the fact that she is over weight. We have to be honest about that. She is super fat. That is the fact! She looks so heavy and doesn't look healthy.

      I would rather look like Adele than his hold skeleton looking half dead old man with white scraggly hair. Plus this is not a recent picture of her. Here is the difference between Karl Lagerfield and Adele...she can lose weight and still be beautiful. Goes to show you Karl can't fix ugly.

      Yes, Adele is overweight but WHY does that matter? Why should we comment on the weight of a SINGER? If he were commenting on a model, it might be relevant. But she sings. No one should care what the scale says.

      lol lol lol ~ He lost lots of respect AND money behind that statement - He got caught! WOW! Goes to show that $$$ talks but what you say offensive in the media can BREAK you all the way dowwwwwwwwwwwwwwn... And he's on his way – The first statement is how he REALLY felt... Moonwalking like MICHAEL JACKSON! lol

      An old man shouldn't be held to the same standard of attractiveness as a relatively young woman. Of course he's wrinkled and ugly, so are all old people. You can't say that all young people are gross fat hogs though. Adele sure is.

      Wow, reading these comments makes one wonder just how many here are self-righteous hypocrites who would welcome someone commenting on their body's fat composition. Get a grip. What he said was rude, and really had no bearing on Adele as a singer/performer. What a bunch of perfect bodied people are reading and commenting here. Posting a "present day" picture to reply would be interesting I bet.

      She is by no means skinny but Amy, she is not "Super-Fat" She has lost quite a bit since the photo was taken but I'd say she was much healthier looking than just about any runway model would look in person.

      Maybe He's too critical, or even mean.

      But when do we go back to free speech. This is America, people, and we should have a right to express our opinion. If he thinks that Adele is fat, well, that is his opinion and he shouldn't have to apologize for having his opinion.

      When you make everyone apologize for everything they say because there is a "backlash", then this is no longer a country with freedom of speech. Think about it.

      I agree with you! UGLY is as UGLY does, and boy, Lagerfeld takes the first prize! Yuck, he looks like an aged albino from the planet of the apes!

      So, what, you have to be attractive looking to have permission to criticize a fat person? Since when? Karl, you go, boy! Tell it like it is! Enough of this crap about how it's what's inside that counts! BS!!!! Why do you think all of the TV anchor people are attractive and nice to look at? Because people don't want to wake up early or come home from work and look at ugly people! Let's keep it real! Adele is fat and unattractive and it hurts to look at her!

      First of all what would a gay man know about woman's beauty? Second most top designers are gay men, that is why super models must have 12 year old boy bodies. No breasts no butt no hips.
